Not worth it IMHO. Maybe the limited production run will help resale years later.

But unless you're a die-hard fanboy of the z28 moniker, the ZL1 is the better way to go.

Disagree. The Z/28 is a pure track car from the factory that will likely beat most performance cars that cost $200,000+ on a road course.
The Z/28 is not for everyone and it sounds like you are not among the people who understand this car.

Just because somebody does not think it is worth 70+ k does mean they don't get it. Just isn't worth it to him . The limited run will help it maintain value but I would assume the majority of the z/28 will forever live in a garage and not on a track. Personally with dealer mark up etc I'd be looking at a lightly used zr1

If soccer moms can shell out 70k by the boatloads for Escalades I'm pretty sure plenty of guys can and will justify / buy a Z/28.

It's just as GM said, "The new Z/28 will be 'Most Expensive Camaro' ever."

I assume they meant street legal terms since the COPO is over $100K.

It appears this car is far from the Z28 of recent years-past that everyone and their brother purchased for street driving. Unless you're serious about racing, I can't imagine dropping $70k+ on a Camaro when you can get the ZL1 or better yet, the new Stingray for less.

except the COPO is legal to race in its respective class in NHRA rules, the rumor mill has been swirling that the Z/28 doesnt legally qualify for any class in SCCA and the COPO was built specifically to meet that class requirment.

after being enlightened by others here on the board, Z/28 is alot more open to other track events. Making it seem like an even better deal.

Most people here don't appreciate a true hot rod. They want back up camaras, memory seats etc. back in the day you would order a car with radio and heater delete. The AC was an option you wouldn't want. That being said if they were making these Z28 with 2013 tail lights I would buy one in a heartbeat. Since the the prototypes came out I wanted lighter cars. I don't want all the extra crap. In fact if I could sign a waiver and get one without the bull**** airbags I would.

The Z/28 is NOT a pure track car. I'm a fan of GM and everything they stand for but this is simply not true.

At the camaro owners appreciation even and lunch, the GM/Chevy reps spoke specifically about the Z28, and he stated that it's not going to be an ideal daily driver.

I remember him saying it's coming standard with NO A/C or radio, but those may be upgradable options...

The way I see the Z/28...it's an awesome car that I'm not going to pay for...and now it gives me a whole new slew of OEM parts to raid. I don't want the whole car, but I want a lot of what it will have.

The ZL1 already does that, and if the Z/28 is only 3 seconds faster than the ZL1 I can make that up in HP increases.
